Default Help with a build 1600 budget

I'm helping my cousin build a computer and would like to see what you guys can do. I've lurked around here on and off for the past 4 or 5 years and I like the builds this group comes up with.


So 1600 dollar budget... needs to include Windows Vista Home Premium and a 20-22" HD monitor.


This computer is not going to be geared for gaming. Just best performance for fast use/multitasking etc.

I appreciate the help .

That all looks good. The monitor just needs to be full HD.
And he also wants 2 dvd/cd drives.
Really appreciate the help.
